New Insurgency: Sandstorm video features and Closed Alpha coming soon!
Community Manager

Greetings Insurgency fans!

We’ve been very quiet over the past few months busily working away on development of Insurgency: Sandstorm, the sequel to our award winning Insurgency franchise coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One next year!

As 2017 draws to a close we are excited to start sharing more progress with you and over the coming weeks will be producing a series of short videos and posts highlighting some of the exciting new features you can expect in Insurgency: Sandstorm next year, along with details on how to get involved with the closed-alpha in a few weeks’ time.

Here is the first in a series of short videos about some of the upcoming new features and improvements being developed for Insurgency: Sandstorm:

This first video shows a work in progress mechanic where two player classes who coordinate together can call for 'Fire Support'. This can come in various forms such as helicopter minigun air support, which can be shot down.

Hey, this looks really, really nice!

Can't wait until we see more.

Keep it up guys, great stuff!

❤

Where my Blackblast mechanic? You can get yourself killed from Blackblast in real life.

Feedback: I think the heli could come down a little faster and I really like the explosion 😄

Can't wait to see more of that stuff 🙂

Couldn't help notice that grenades weren't in the weapon selection, does that mean nade's are assigned to a key press (G for example) or that particular class didn't have a grenade?

can't wait! the alpha should be fun.

How to get to closed alpha?

We'll release more details about the Alpha process soon. Stay tuned to social networks and this forum not to miss any announcement. Have a nice day!

we are waiting so long,

Will there be an Alpha coming to PS4 and if so how/ where can i sign up
-Cheers

@vincenthorgan seems unlikely, as there's a lot more work required for such, especially when it comes to builds/updates

Console testing sessions are still being discussed. Nothing decided yet. Stay tuned here and on social networks not to miss any announcement about that. Have a nice day!

@vincenthorgan Put the console aside and build a PC dude! That way the devs can divert their attention and focus on the game and on one platform.

Other companies try to maximise their profits by releasing their game on XBOX and not working on their NETCODE.. I will not name the game but maybe you know it 😛

Hi, I check the mailbox every day, even after ten times a day, best regards 🙂

Best tactical fps for 2018, pretty sure

You guys weren't kidding when you said 'soon'. Nice!

Hi!

How can I sign up for the Closed Beta?

First testing sessions will be on Windows, but we'd love to open them to consoles. Although it's technically more demanding, meaning there is nothing certain yet. We'll announce here and on social networks any news about that.

Best way to stay updated is to follow us on social networks and subscribe to our newsletter 🙂

Is there a beta for this on Windows (PC)? If so how do you go about signing up. I am very interested in this game and it has really caught my attention. Its the modern up to date battling I have been looking for. I would ask about Timeline and Beta testing for XBOX but I have see those questions answered for PS4. But with PC any timeline for beta or how to go about signing up for that??

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Hi, we're not in beta yet, but we're currently running a closed Alpha with a few hundreds players. Registration are now sadly closed for this testing session, but we'll have more in the future.

About testing sessions on consoles, same answer for Xbox One and PS4. It might arrive later but nothing confirmed for now.

It's not in mine either.. 😛
